It took me months to try my first [solidcore] class. I was nervous for two reasons: 1. I had totally gotten out of my gym routine and was so disgustingly unmotivated, so I know it’d kick my butt, and 2. I knew I’d become addicted. Before [solidcore], I had a decent fitness routine and really relied on that hour of alone time when I joined the corporate world. But because of my time spent in...

Any New Years Resolutions?

“I resolve to call my parents more.” “I’m going to run that half marathon I’ve been putting off.” “I’m going to swear less.” “I’m definitely going to lose ten pounds.” Right around this time every year, the holidays prime us to both reflect and prepare for the year ahead. New Years Day is a day that presents the opportunity for change and growth. As we move one year to the next, however, we can find...

How to tackle Dedicated December the [right] way

I went to open an e-mail at work, and my triceps were twitching as I clicked my mouse. I got up from my desk chair, and my glutes screamed out. I took the stairs to a meeting, and my lower abs felt it every time I picked up my feet. It must be [dedicated december]... You must be thinking to yourself, “Why would anyone do this to themselves? Taking 14 classes in a month, especially...

Staying on track, even when you are off the grid

I am one for routines – my morning of [solidcore]/shower/coffee/Today Show, my evening skincare regiment (get on the train guys, your skin is there for everyone to see) – I love them all, I do not like to veer. I also am a traveler – for work or fun, for a quick weekend or a two week excursion, I am always on the go. However, travel and routine do not always go hand-in-hand, especially when...

Be Comfortable Being Uncomfortable

We are groomed to avoid discomfort at every corner... There comes a point in life, and in every [solidcore] class where you are so uncomfortable that you just want to stop. This is the exact time where you need to keep going! Ladies and gentleman, it is time to get comfortable being uncomfortable. We live in a culture where we work hard so that we can be comfortable - big house, fancy vacations, luxury cars....

Sweating to feel good vs. sweating to lose weight

“Create the strongest version of yourself.” This is [solidcore]’s mission statement and the main reason why I love working for this company. We are all about building a community where everyone who walks in feels welcomed, included, and motivated to push themselves past their limits. It’s a safe place where you can express yourself fully and take on a challenge that strengthens your mind, body, and spirit. Every time I walk into a [solidcore] studio,...

3 years and so much to [celebrate]

Three years, 14 studios, 20 full-time staff, 105 coaches and more than 50,000 clients and if I had to guess, I would say 9,534,234 high fives.  All these numbers put a pretty big smile on my face. When I opened the first [solidcore] in November of 2013 in Adams Morgan, DC, I remember feeling so excited about being able to introduce a new way of working out to this great city. As a fitness junkie,...
